EMILIO ZAMORANO, Pedro. Visual Arts in Chile during the first half of the xx century: a look at the theoretical field. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2011, n.504, pp. 193-212. ISSN 0718-0462. doi: 10.4067/S0718-04622011000200011.
This work analyses the scene of critics of Art in the country from the last decades of the XIX century up through the last half of the XX century. It reviews the voices and initial speeches, establishing models, styles and forms of expression and diffusion. It goes deeper into some authors such as Ricardo Richon-Brunet, Antonio Romera y Jean Emar, relating their theoretical speeches with the most important moments and contents of national art. It also analyses the importance that some of the art expositions had in the country, concluding with a revision of the local sculpture historiography.
